Rupp Arena, University of Kentucky
Kentucky 79, South Carolina 64

Pics/Vids from Game 1 - Belmont vs. Lipscomb

(Lost fans. Still not sure what the Michigan State fan was doing at Kentucky vs. South Carolina game.)

(South Carolina players work on their post-moves)

(Rupp Arena was empty before the game. But once the fans arrived, it filled up quickly.)

(I was told he was a junior. He looks like he's about 48-years old.)

(The Kentucky Wildcats enter the arena for pregame warm-ups)

(Pregame layup lines for the Wildcats)

(Player introductions for Kentucky. I was not ready for the fireworks at all.)

(The Cheerleaders we legit. They did actual cheerleading stuff. Like flips, and stuff...)

(Marcus Teague guards Bruce Ellington, who is also a member of South Carolina's football team.)

(Players wait for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to take his foul shot)

(The eRUPPtion Zone". The guy in the referee shirt is Vincent Swope, who hit a halfcourt shot at halftime to win $10,000.)

(The scene during a TV-timeout)

(The Kentucky mascot did a lot of dancing during TV-timeouts)

(Big Blue Nation packed Rupp Arena to the brim)

(There were ten TV cameras at the press conference. All of them were for Kentucky. I don't want to even know what it's like when they play Louisville.)

(That's Megan Dills. She was the former Playboy "Girls of the SEC" model who got trampled during the court-storming after Indiana's victory over Kentucky. Yeah, she supports the #BIAHroadtrip)
